More About Run Your Socks off 5K

The Down Syndrome Association of SWLA invites you and your family to participate the Run your Socks off 5k +, in honor of World Down Syndrome Day! Our run will not be the traditional 5K (3.1 mile) but will be a 3.21-mile walk/run. The 3.21 represents that individuals with Down syndrome carry 3 copies of the 21st chromosome. So, our route will include that “little something extra”. We have also had a small group of individuals with Down syndrome who have been training to run or walk this event , so this will be their moment to shine and show our community their “capABILITIES”
We couldn’t think of a better day to host our run but on the weekend before World Down Syndrome Day( 3/21) March 23, 2024. We invite all runners or walkers with varying Abilities to join us.
